Grammy-winning Beenie Man has been cleared of tax evasion charges

A Jamaican judge in Kingston has cleared the Beenie Man, the Grammy-winning
musician, of tax evasion charges, saying the government never informed him of
his legal rights.

Anthony Moses Davis, as the Beenie Man is called, had been charged for owing
almost $US1m (?560,000) in overdue taxes,

reports.

But Judge Owen Parkin threw out the case Tuesday, ruling evidence showed the
entertainer was not informed of his rights when auditors made their assessment
last year.

The singer is regarded as one of the biggest names in dancehall music for a
decade. In 2001, he won a Grammy for his album ‘Art and Life’.
